Our Story

The Fret Shop

Celebrating more than 30 Years!  We thank you for your continued support!

With its humble beginnings in a tiny, Huntsville storefront in historic Five Points, The Fret Shop has grown into one of the largest dealers of stringed musical instruments in North Alabama.

We carry a wide selection of musical instruments, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you find the guitar, bass, violin, banjo or mandolin that’s right for you.  After all…we’re musicians too, so we know what musicians like.

We also carry several lines of amplifiers, strings, effects, stands, microphones, PA systems and books.  Our huge inventory includes premium brands like Fender, Squier, Gretsch, Jackson, Guild, Eastman, Taylor, Breedlove, Alvarez, Tech 21, DigiTech, Gold Tone, Roland and Boss.  We also carry Austin, Oscar Schmidt, Mackie, G&L, TC Electronics, Wechter, Godin, Seagull, Shure, Rudoulf Doetsch and Ivan Dunov.

We take great pride in offering superior service — both before and after the sale — at the lowest possible prices.  The Fret Shop’s loyal customers are the reason for our success.  We pride ourselves in treating everyone with the same level of respect, and we always try our best to make our customers feel right at home.
